Anyone who has completed the Project Optimal Foundations in Autism Spectrum Disorders (FASD) course will not be required to repeat this component of the Autism Added Authorization program. The Autism Added Authorization program has been developed so that competencies build on each other as the learner moves through the content. Also, those people who have completed their Certificate in Autism Studies (Educational version) through Antioch University Santa Barbara within the previous 24 months will be given credit toward the Added Authorization Program. Please contact Project Optimal for more information.
Although there are a range of programs that may cover similar content, Project Optimal has neither the individual knowledge, nor and understanding of the variation in quality of programs provided by other organizations or institutions. Because of this, we are unable to provide recognition of prior study other that the FASD.
